School Calendar

We are a school which follows the traditional calendar.  View our school's Calendar for upcoming events and dates.  

Lunch Supervision 

Lunch supervision is available for all students, for students who stay at school.  For the safety and security of our students, it is important we know who is supposed to be in the program.  All families must register their children in the lunchroom program.  The best way to register your child is by going to preregister them using MyCBE account.

Assigned Teachers

Teachers will be sending home a welcome email to their students no later than the end of the day on Wednesday, August 31, 2022. This email will let your child know who their teacher is and where to meet on the first day of school.

Registration Information

Please visit our How to Register page for registration details and forms.

Our school office opens on Monday August 29, 2022.

​​​​Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2022-23 school year are created o​ver the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in June. Transportation continues to accept registrations after the deadline; however, students are added to the closest existing stop with available space. Processing times could be up to six weeks at the beginning of the school year due to volume.

More information about 2022-23 transportation service levels and proposed fees are posted on the CBE website.

Your bus stop location and time will be available in your MyCBE account by mid-August.

Conditional riders can also register using MyCBE. Applications will be considered after eligible riders registrations have been processed.

Learn more about transportation on the CBE website.

We look forward to a great year ahead. If you have any questions that we haven’t addressed here, please contact the school.
